Sometimes all it takes is one song. For me it was this one:
I know that’s not terribly original of me, but I’m a rocker not a hipster, so I’m not gonna dig out some obscure song and pretend I’ve been a Thrice fan forEVER. What I will tell you is this one song was enough to make me dig into their catalogue, which spans almost 30 years and nine studio albums. Their latest, To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere contains the aforementioned “Black Honey,” and several stellar tunes to fall in love with. After falling down the rabbit hole of YouTube Thrice videos, I downloaded and can recommend 2003’s The Artist in the Ambulance for the post hardcore in you, and also to compare how their song has evolved over the years.
Masterful, experimental, prolific: Catch Thrice at WJRR’s EarthDay Birthday on April 22.
